It has the technology, scale and geographical breadth to provide comprehensive connectivity solutions to a large number of customers and applications across Europe with a global reach. Headquartered in Hurley, Berkshire, the company operates across Europe with country offices in the UK, Denmark, France, Germany and Spain.

During the CVC Growth Fund’s period of investment, Wireless Logic has continued its impressive organic growth trajectory, supplemented by several strategic acquisitions.

Oliver Tucker, Co-founder and Group CEO of Wireless Logic, said: “We are delighted to welcome Montagu into the Wireless Logic Group. Under the stewardship of the CVC Growth Fund, we have continued our double-digit organic growth which has been complemented by four acquisitions in the UK, Germany and Denmark, with each introducing key new technologies and skillsets into the group business. As we thank CVC for its partnership and counsel, the group board is looking forward to a bright, ambitious and exciting future with Montagu as we set about continuing our strategy to make Wireless Logic Group into a truly world-class platform offering.”
